Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

When buying a VW, do NOT get the basic hub caps. Go ahead and request wheels because everyone I know that has had VWs with hub caps like me has had to replace them constantly. The hub caps cannot be sealed on well and always have a gap between cap and wheel that readily pops off at any gradient in the road.
